Summer Programs - Eligibility

Students qualify for CBK Summer Programs based on SAT, ACT, EXP, or PSAT 8/9 test scores or through a portfolio admission process. Reading or English scores are used to determine eligibility for Humanities courses, and Mathematics or Science scores determine eligibility for STEM courses. Please review the chart below for score requirements and see courses for coding. Scores from any of the four Academic Talent Searches for program admission are good for two years (2015); students are not required to retest each year in order to maintain eligibility for the summer programs.
